Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: Exhalation

Monday, February 22, 2021

Join us as we discuss Ted Chiang's highly-acclaimed short story collection.

This month, we are discussing "Exhalation," by Ted Chiang: nine stories exploring such issues as humankind's place in the universe, the nature of humanity, bioethics, virtual reality, free will and determinism, time travel and the uses of robotic forms of A.I.
